In 2020, Lawrence County SWCD provided assistance to more than 300 farmers within the district.

Cover crops help prevent erosion and build soil health.

“We assisted landowners with various practices that helped with resource concerns, we did cover crops to help with erosion, and build soil health with our agriculture farmers. The Lawrence County SWCD did pasture reseeding, access roads, and heavy use pads with areas that are muddy and heavy manure with our grazing producers. Lawrence County is the number one beef cattle producer in the State of Indiana,” said Whitney Baldwin Lawrence County Soil Water Conservation District.
